This master bathroom confirms high-end finishes can mix with unique elements. The vanity chair shows off the client's personality without overpowering the space.

Once a dim room with a dark woodworking and a large custom bookcase unit, this family room was in need of a do-over. White paint brightened the space, while new furnishings, art, and accessories completed the total transition of this once-dreary space.

Integrating rich granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and an ornate range hood created a kitchen worthy of being the heart of the home.

The existing traditional leather sofas were updated by adding contemporary art, fresh greenery, new paint and accessories to reflect the client’s desire for a transitional style.
